When there is strong and compelling evidence that the presence of an employee on his or her job might create serious problems, if such evidence were subsequently proven to be correct, a president or the Chancellor may temporarily suspend an employee pending investigation and/or the furnishing of formal notice of disciplinary action. Unless earlier terminated by the president or the Chancellor, as the case may be, such temporary suspension shall automatically terminate upon the furnishing of formal notice of disciplinary action, or unless extended as provided by this section 30 days after its commencement, whichever first occurs.
The date for such automatic termination of the period of temporary suspension, where no furnishing of formal notice of disciplinary action has occurred, may be extended upon the written statement of the employee addressed to the president or the Chancellor, as the case may be, requesting such extension.
Suspension under this section shall not prejudice the case of the employee or any rights he or she may be provided under this article.
